Hardik Pandya silences the doubters with T20 World Cup bowling blitz

Pandya's impressive World Cup bowling performance has silenced his critics. He has proven his ability to overcome challenges and deliver when it matters most.

Hardik Pandya’s journey to the ICC T20 World Cup has been far from smooth. Recently, he faced public disapproval and questions about his bowling commitment. However, the Indian team management remained confident in his abilities.

Hardik Pandya struggles in IPL 2024

Hardik Pandya‘s struggles in the IPL were evident. He wasn’t bowling regularly and his economy rate was high. Despite this, the Indian support staff, led by bowling coach Paras Mhambrey, closely monitored his work ethic in the nets.

Hardik never lost confidence in himself,” said Mhambrey. “He was simply lacking rhythm, something that can happen to any bowler. The key was that he kept putting in the hard work, and we knew it was just a matter of time before he found his groove again.”

Finding rhythm in T20 World Cup

The T20 World Cup has proven to be a turning point for Pandya. He has become India’s joint-highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far, bowling his full quota of overs in every match.

The India vice-captain has bagged seven wickets in the tournament so far with brilliant economy of 5.41 and average of 9.28.

His ability to take wickets with the short ball, especially evident against Pakistan and USA, has been a valuable asset for India.

Crucial role ahead for T20 World Cup

With India opting for an extra spinner in their squad, Pandya’s role becomes even more critical. He is the only player who can effectively fill the role of a seam-bowling all-rounder, especially if India chooses to play just two frontline pacers.
